It is tapped by hooking up a performance box, there are 2 ways, tap the external wire, or use BD stealth cover to tap fuel solenoid. If you don't have a performance box to hook to the tap, tapping will do nothing for you. Like edge comp uses tap to increase fuel flow.

Performance box? Would that be like a diablo power puck or? But do I have to get a box or tap the vp44 to put bigger injectors in with benefits?

You need a fueling box like a edge comp or a quad adr. to tap the pump and to get the most out of the bigger injectors.

I agree with c Farmer, a powerpuck does not increase fuel flow, just pulse width of injector and adds timing to vp.

1. Lift pump as stated.

2. Gauges (fuel pressure, boost, pyro).

3. Trans upgrades (if not already).

4. Tap the pump with a fueling box and away you go.:thumbsup:

He's right... :thumbsup:

But I would tap with a stealth plate...


No fuss, no problems with broken wires or corroded connection... It just works!

Sorry to bring this up again, I've added an aftermarket lp the proper gauges and a smarty, going to be doing the tranny in a month or so. Will the smarty allow me to tap intobthe vp properly?
